Sometime the best give is peace of mind. With Grohe Sense and Grohe Sense Guard, you can have all-round protection against water damage: The smart water sensor is placed on the floor and can detect water retention and it will send out a warning alert to the Ondus app. The alert is sent to the user and specific emergency contacts. The sensor also measures the room temperature and humidity and informs users in case of deviations from the standard amounts. Homeowners can be protected against frost and mould risks using multiple sensors to monitor water pressure, system temperature, flow of water and general water consumption. It also conducts periodic micro leakage tests so that leaks can be detected immediately before major damage can occur. If a pipe bursts, it automatically turns off the water supply when it exceeds a specific maximum. www.grohe-middleeast.com
